Dunlop's Restaurant Victorian brand concept, design development and project production.
Dunlop’s restaurant in Ballsbridge, Dublin 4 was named after Henry Dunlop (1844-1930) who was the figure behind the construction of the Lansdowne Road stadium.
The design concept for this restaurant, on the new Dublin 4 campus of a global tech company, was inspired by the rich visual language of Victorian Dublin which included ornate stained glass windows and mosaic tile work. As a large number of staff are from overseas, the idea of Dublin's Victorian heritage was the chosen theme.
Working with Dublin's best artisan craftspeople we used traditional methods to adapt the Dunlops logo to stunning original pieces including a 5 metre x 2.5 metre stained glass window and a 3 metre wide logo mosaic. The project also included a series of signage,
way finding and information graphics telling the story of Victorian Dublin.
While the main artwork pieces were installed in July 2020, the completion of the project is on hold due to Covid 19 restrictions in Ireland.
Design development of Dunlops restaurant branding from rough concepts to colour palette options and other as yet unused assets.
